My husband and I both fill prescriptions with Walgreens at 5701 NW 183RD ST
Hialeah FL 33015 each month. Neither of us have medical insurance & between the both of us, we spend well over $500.00 on our meds, so as you could imagine we dont have room for the world's largest pharmacy to short us anything.
My husband's meds are the most expensive so we usually fill his in 2-week increments. I noticed on 8/11/12 while dividing his meds up for the week he was short 8 Diovan & one Labetalol. We went back and the assistant gave us a hard time and told my husband and I we would have to wait while they investigate. I told them I would not wait after already being inconvenienced by having to drive back again to fix their mistake.
The pharmacists finally fixed the mistake. My husband picked up my prescription 9/1/12, I counted before I took them and instead of 30 there were 29 in one bottle. COUNT YOUR MEDICATION BEFORE YOU LEAVE even if it inconveniences them.
Just imagine if they fill 10,000 prescriptions a day and shorts each customer 1 pill, how much money do they earn by a "simple oversight". In the end we loose.
